As a real estate agent, I learned a few tricks from home stagers and photographers. In fact, photographers are experts in how to make quick changes to capture the best features of a home. Today I want to share a few simple decor hacks. These hacks work for staging a home to sell or for seasonal decor where you only need a hack to last through a holiday or season.

The power of paper binder clips. These little clips have the strength that defies gravity and prying hands. These clips are inexpensive and small enough to hide in plain sight to the untrained eye.
I love to use paper binder clips for fabric related projects. They are a quick way to hem, tuck, fold or straighten window treatments.
Binder clips proved a huge help during the holidays when I wanted to keep garland in place on the mantel and tables. It’s so subtle no one ever noticed it and the garland never slipped off the sofa table. They work well with wreaths and arrangments too when glue isn’t enough to keep it all together.
Binder clips work great in floral arrangements too. Do you have stems the same length, but want the variety of height in an arrangement? I used paper clips to adjust these cotton stems I purchased at my favorite online store.
Never underestimate the strength of binder clips. Where have you used binder clips in your decor hacks?
